Are ALL your messages duplicated and with that date, or just some? While I have not a clue, I would suspect a problem with the e-mail host.

Just some....

I thought it was just on mail from a friend who uses Apple, but after a
couple of days of just some of her messages duplicating that way, I got
one from a friend who uses AOL, right behind the other one's message.
Don't know if they were related, I failed to check if maybe it was a
reply to one of the Apple messages.

I didn't know if it was Microsoft or Apple related perhaps, since I'm the only
one who doesn't use MS based e-mail [except the 1 friend using Apple].

Unless you are suggesting Seamonkey is problematic running under Mac OS, I doubt if there is any difference on what computer or OS messages originate.

While no expert, I believe seamonkey gets the time stamp for each message from the received e-mail (which has Universal Time ) and shows it based on your computer's time clock.

If your friend's computer's clock is really messed up, it would send a wrong time. I doubt any currently operating computer BIOS would default back to 1969, so it would have to be set intentionally.

sorry to say, but many people DO get messages dated 1969, including me. Furthermore, just recently I've been receiving messages dated 2033, 2050, and even 2075.

Don't know about 2033 but you will not have to worry about the two later dates!! Check out:-


The (Computer) world is going to end........again!


yeah, and there's a lot of fear mongers out there. The doom and gloomers of 2038 are probabaly the same ones from the Y2K one.

Then again, maybe we should start the fear for the year 10,000: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_10,000_problem

or how about any of these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_32,768_problem

or how about the year: 292,277,026,596 or even the year: 170,141,183,460,469,231,731,687,303,715,884,105,727.

I don't know about you, but I don't care: I won't be around at that time. Leave it to someone else to worry about.
